Music in your business.
Get the permission you need to play music in your store is quick and easy with OneMusic. With our music licence you are supporting the people that make and own the songs you love and cover your legal obligations when playing our music in your business.
Music in your business is different to listening to music at home. When you play music in your business this is considered a ‘public performance’ under the New Zealand Copyright Act 1994. The Act grants music creators exclusive rights over how their work is used, and provides a legal framework to enable them to earn a living from their art.
We’ve done the hard work for you. Instead of you having to contact and get permission from every songwriter, composer, publisher, recording artist and record label, for every single song you play – you get a licence with us.
Who are OneMusic?
Music plays a part in business success, from cafés, bars and restaurants, shops, hairdressers, gyms, dance schools, offices, on hold music, and more, without music you really notice the silence.
Your OneMusic licence gives you permission to play essentially all commercially released music from anywhere around the world. When you hear about music royalties, that’s what we do. OneMusic is a joint licensing initiative between APRA AMCOS and Recorded Music NZ. Music creators around the world earn an income by granting organisations, like ours, the right to collect and pay their royalties.
By simplifying the licensing process, OneMusic allows music users to meet their copyright obligations to play our music in their business.
